FuelCell Energy Announces Solid Oxide Electrolyzer Cell Solution with Department of Energy Contract

On October 20, FuelCell Energy announced a new energy storage solution based on solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs).  The Department of Energy (DOE) is supporting the development of the SOEC system with a $3 million cost-share contract. 

The SOEC system converts power from the grid into hydrogen during periods of low demand using electrolysis.  When additional power is needed, the hydrogen can then be fed through a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system for efficient conversion to electricity. Because the SOFC system is using pure hydrogen from the SOEC system, round trip efficiencies of 70% are possible.
